Decorating with Simplicity

As I pulled out boxes of Christmas decorations,
I was overwhelmed with the memories of it all.
I was overwhelmed with the amount of it all!
With my 2012 motto being Simplify, 
I decided to simplify my decorating.
Decor totally enhances and helps to immerse

    BTW - thanks for the thoughtful comments on my blog. I love to read them!! I gave you the blog award "Liebster" - go and visit me to see what it's all about!! :)

  4. It all looks lovely. We have been in the middle of a kitchen renovation nightmare, so our decorations aren't even up yet. Just a little pointsettia and some Christmas cards. I was heartbroken about it at first, but, actually, the simplicity of it has been kind of nice!


Always happy to hear from you! Comments make my day, just please keep them uplifting and positive. Thanks for stopping by!
